Great craic and fine horses right in the middle of the country on the Galway - Dublin road. Just a few hours away from anywhere at most.

I bumped in to Mary Coughlin, Minister for Agriculture accompanied by Gardaí and men in suits on walkabout around the town. Earlier she’d been on stage with a lot of official looking people talking about her ‘brief’ (looking for votes). On the street I asked her was she going to support the farmers in Bantry in their efforts to ensure that the ESB put power lines under rather than over their land in accordance with best international practise and I challenged her for making representations on behalf of the private developer involved above the wishes of the farmers who she is mandated to represent. She denied this allegation saying she was only “looking for an update”. I told her I had seen the letter. Annoyed, she made a quick get-away from me in the same way as she ran from Joe Burke, Chairman of the Bantry Concerned Action Group when he challenged her at the Ploughing Championships last week in Carlow. You can read the letter yourselves and make your own mind up. See here: http://www.indymedia.ie/article/77670 .

Get off the stage Mary, you're holding up the show ...
